Teach us to count our days that we may gain a wise heart. - Psalm 90:12 (NRSV)
A hymn titled “The Old Rugged Cross” has this line in its chorus: “I’ll cherish the old rugged cross, till my trophies at last I lay down.” It is about the Christian hope of heaven, where we will lay aside our earthly trophies and receive a heavenly crown.
My greatest trophy is God’s sustaining love.
Respond by posting a prayer.
Emmaus helped me laugh again, and it brought joy back to my life after the loss of my child. I am now stronger than ever in my walk with the Lord. And to this day, I continue to sponsor pilgrims to The Walk to Emmaus. In my local church, I have led our discipleship team and have had the opportunity to start new Sunday school classes and various women’s ministries. ¡De Colores!”
